That is a major problem:Duncan, how do you explain that to drivers, so they don't put their 100 percent trust in Self-driving cars? Most people are tempted and think this is it: leave the wheel and it will take you to the destination. I think Tesla's 3000 dollar package basically promises that.
- if the car is self-driving, then owners must put their trust entirely in the vehicle - the owners are not drivers at all during automated operation, and will leave it to the vehicle to take them to the destination
- if the vehicle has only assistance features (such as Tesla's Autopilot), then the driver cannot trust the vehicle at all and remains entirely accountable for the vehicle's operation.
I looked at Tesla's web page on Autopilot today, and was both surprised and disturbed to see that they are claiming self-driving capability, in stark contrast to the reality of the system.
